As the title says - should the post we make in the "Forum Games" section show in our total post count?

Continued from:

The outcome of this poll will determine what we'll do. Feel free to discuss in this thread.
The poll will stay open for five days.

I'll put no. But in the end, does post count really make that much of a difference?

In my opinion, post count doesn't do ****.

We already know each other here, and respect each other. There is no need to judge anyone else based on their post count.

So I am neutral.

I personally use peoples post counts to create a fair approximate of how active they are, and forum games makes an already somewhat incorrect approximate, very incorrect

I guess I'm the only one that voted no so far.

I don't mean 'No' as in OMG NO, STOP. I mean, it in a way that it doesn't really matter, we shouldn't judge people either way on how few posts they have or how many, but by the stature of their posts. If someone comes in here and starts posting and we see them having only a couple posts and they start a great thread and we see that they posted it and skip over it but Joe who spends all day on forum games and we see he has a trillion posts starts a thread we all jump to it because we know the name and the thread sucks.

This may seem like babbling and useless nonsense but I really don't care either way if we take them out or leave them, but most everyone here no matter there post count is great in many ways.

But, on the other hand, if we say that we shouldn't judge people based on there post count then whats the point of having a post count?

I dunno, it's a big deal and I don't care either way, but I remember when people got all pissed when they took it out on AF.

I mean no offense or hurt in this just...

I need to stop.

This +...

I don't mind if you put in this rule, if you enforce it in the right places. There are some forum games that are really just general discussion, like the 'Random About Yourself' thread. Not really a forum game at all.

Post count doesn't say anything about the quality of posts.
I voted no, but just because it's more logical option, "useless" posts shouldn't be included, if we want to play "post count game".

EDIT: But anyway...this not gurantee that other than forum games posts are worth counting. So I really don't know what option is right.

Happened to AF, figured it was only a matter of time...

While we're at it, lets make all member usernames the same color. Put the "Admin" or "Mod" or "Donator" status on their profile. Hell, no more cool signatures either. [/notsrs]

You know, I almost thought this was sarcasm. Correctly judge who to talk to? Are you serious? Who does this? Does anyone else do this? Do I talk to our admins because they're admins? Do I talk do the donators just because they supported the website? No, most are cool people. They're fun to talk to. Just because some people are newfags, doesn't mean they're unobservant. You can tell who and who you do not want to talk to based on their posts, not how many of them they have.

I just don't understand why this was brought up in the first place. Woodsprite...really? Has it become that big of a problem?

First Mune with the friends list problem, now this. Why is everybody making a big deal out of nothing? Was it hurting anyone?

Hmm, I guess I'm starting to sound just like the people who /do/ have a problem with these things.

But in the end, I suppose it doesn't really matter. Despite the change, I still spam the AF games every now and then because it's fun.

I really agree with everything Fkeu 'Awpo said.

Still, if the community wants something, it will happen. After all, ToS is a member's forum.

Voted no, but post count really doesn't mean a thing to me. I don't even think it's worth worrying over to be honest...

It really doesn't matter, in my opinion. As people before me have said, post count doesn't reflect post quality. But the number of what we might classify as "pointless" posts on forum games would not show on a member's post count. I voted no.
